Review: Seers by Heather Frost
This book is available for pre-order HERE.
Amazon Product Description:
For Kate Bennet, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.
Wonderfully written. Loved the characters. The world she has built for her characters has a variety of elements. The world that Kate lives in with her family and friends is solid and realistic, the author has captured the high school feel with accuracy. The world that Kate finds when she meets Patrick and Toni is something completely new.
Her demon/guardian ideas are refreshing. I loved the idea that a person chooses at their death to either go on to heaven or to become a guardian. I wonder how she chose 25 as the perfect age, but it seems alright, but my favorite part of her heaven is that everyone gets to be with those that they have loved and lost. That children automatically go to heaven and get to go on being raised my their parents when they are all united again. It brings a smile to believe that her idea of heaven could be possible.
I enjoyed all the characters. Kate is great. Toni makes me laugh. Lee is the best friend we either all have or if not, all want. Kate's sisters are typical and realistic, making me glad I not only am not a twin but don't have twins of my own. Aaron is that perfect boyfriend that you always hear about people having. Kate's grandparents are wonderful. But with all these characters, and those I didn't list, Patrick is by far and away my favorite character. He is "that" guy, the one we all dream about.
The plot moves quickly. The story is fantastic. Kate's journey from a regular high school girl with a loving family, to an orphaned girl living with her sisters and her grandparents, to a member of a demon fighting team with special powers is a ride you don't want to miss. I will be waiting for the sequel!
